We hardly got to know you…

I know everyone is still feeling very sad, at the departure of our “little bear”. It has been bittersweet, what with all the posts on Twidder and Fezbook of Bubba when he was weally widdle. Hopefully, another round of ‘toons of Bubba’s childhood along with the trials and tribulations of being the little brother to an international super star and Smifsonian Icon, will make everyone just a little less sad.

Thanks for all who posted the pictures of him in his new home. I really loved the BFX base. We spent 2 days there visiting pandas. The yards are large (at least as large as Bubba’s yard back home) and full of mature trees. From the pictures, it looked like many of the trees in his yard did not have tree guards, so he gets to do his favorite activity, climbing. While he had a similar reaction as Pinky had to his first introduction to panda bread, he seems happy about all the bamboo shoots!

Let’s have some Bubba ‘toons, okay?

And then there was the day he had to figure out what to wear for his debut…

How IS this different from Pinky’s normal bossiness?

Funny how Pinky sneaks in to almost all of Bubba’s ‘toons!

My! You are quite the good looking fellow!

You keep using that word “share”, mommee!

Bubba: but why should I be in trubble?

I’ll talk! I’ll talk!

Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?

“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”

uh oh…

What do you mean you left a note saying they are at my house?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

I hope you enjoyed this extra big Birthday Season* dose of pandas! Like bubba says, we might be da victims of a repressive regime, so we need all the pandas (and laughs) we can get! Panda on everyone!

 

Be da (widdle) Bear!

*Yes, it is STILL my birthday season!!!! 

Let’s Celebrate the Canadian Pandas!

How did it ever get to be September? I just can’t imagine how August slipped by with hardly any notice. One of these months I need to completely block out my calendar and stay in bed for a week and read books and eat toast.

Meanwhile, I think it’s time to share our Salute to the Canadian Pandas, because…well, just because!

Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?

“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”

uh oh…

Um…I think Pinky has Daddee wrapped around her fuzzy little paw. Just saying.

Ooooh! Did Daddee actually yell at Pinky?

What do you mean you left a note saying they are at my house?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

There may be political concussions!

I just love that series of ‘toons! And we are definitely now suffering from political concussions!

Panda on!

31 Days of Pandas: Day 23/ September Year in Review

Oh my! it is Christmas Eve EVE! time to swill down some egg nog, finish that last minute shopping, and get ready for the final episodes of Pinky in Wonderland! Do we know what is going to happen? Well, SOME of us do!

But you’re just going to have to wait and see, won’t you?

And now, let’s continue with everyone’s favorite game show, Name that Personality Disorder!!!!

Someone forgot to take their meds today, I think.

Lock that cat up, for crying out loud!

You can dress him up, but you can’t take him out! Um…maybe you can’t even dress him up.

Yep, that old Mittens…he’s SUCH a charmer!

This was one of my favorite stories of the year. The lions paved the way for Frank and Mikey, the grizzly bears who…um…allegedly ate a Supreme Court Nominee.

Ooooooo-oooo-oooo-we have food tonight…

Here kitty kitty…nice kitty…

“We just want to talk!”

Did I just spill something on my new outfit?

 

Be a sneaky panda!

31 Days of Pandas: Year in Review: January 2018

Welcome to our first Year in Review post, where we look back at my favorite ‘toons from each month this year.

Let’s spin the wheel and see what we were thinking about last January….

new year

I couldn’t resist.

Since it is January, I imagine Pinky has been given a resolution or two, (by her mom)  in hopes she will be a better panda this year.

resolutions

Pinky: “rules are for other pandas.”

Of course, being an Olympic year, the super secret selection of this year’s Torch Bears had everyone guessing!

Uh oh! has there been Russian tampering with the selection of the Torch Bears?

Hey! watch where you put that torch!

Of course the pandas had lots of practicing to do before the big event…

Hey! What are you two doing up on top of the ski jump?

Let Pinky be Pinky!

Alas…we were in for yet another year of life in the regime of “President” Mittens. Really, It couldn’t get worse, could it? Oh, yeah…it could.

Clear as mud!

Join us tomorrow as we look back on February 2018’s favorite ‘toons! See ya then!

Panda On!

Some Pandas for the Day After

So, since I schedule posts to appear at about 5 or 6 in the morning EST (You’re welcome!) so that you can have a little shot of panda satire before you go off to work, we don’t really know how this whole election thing has worked out. Despite some last minute maneuvering by various GOP outposts (I’m looking at you, Calvert County MD!!!! Shutting down public transportation on election day? Shame on you!) early voting numbers are way up, in some cases exceeding even the total number of votes cast for the 2014 midterms.

I am optimistically, provisionally hopeful….Sort of. 

But I will wait to hear some election news before I schedule Friday’s encore presentation ‘toons. We will either have happy pandas, or post apocalyptic pandas, or maybe we will have lalalalala-I-can’t-hear-you pandas. But one thing I am sure of.

There will be pandas! Here are some now!

Thank you to the international Panda Community! You are da bears!

Panda On!

Save the Date: A reminder that our annual Panda-Palooza, 31 Days of Pandas is just around the corner! We’ll be adding additional NEW ‘toons to our usual 2 new ‘toons a week, plus a Year in Review Roundup with my (and I hope yours) favorite ‘toons of 2018! Set your watch for December, because that’s when it all takes place! There has to be SOMETHING to look forward to, right? Stay tuned for more information about our posting schedule!

Don’t You Be Talking Smack About Unka Justin!

Dis. Will. Not. STAND!!!!!!!!!

Nobody, but nobody gets to talk smack about Unka Justin! And so, Fabulous Furry Friday revisits the Canadian Pandas, because we LOVE Unka Justin! Panda on, good buddies to the north!

Oh Panada, Oh Panada, how tasty are your maple leaves….

What do you mean you left a note saying they are at my house?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

Are you SURE you wouldn’t like to vote for Bob?

There may be political concussions!

And don’t we all feel this way when we think about President Mittens?

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

If you thought things were already crazy, I have a feeling we haven’t seen anything yet. Hold on to your cuppycakes!

Be the Bear!

WE now return to our story…

Yes, we have returned to our story of Bubba and Ping’s visit to the Canadian twins, before they moved across the country from Toronto to Calgary. I’m sorry I interrupted it (several times) but stuff happened that I wanted to do ‘toons about sooner rather than later, and so there you have it.

But why can’t you just do extra days of ‘toons to keep up with all the stories?, you might say. And to you I would say….

Even a bear has to sleep sometimes!

So now, on with our story!

So THAT’S how Pinky got there so quickly!

Panda On!

Canadian Pandas are on the move!

So sad for Toronto, but happy happy for those of us living west of the Rockies! Er Shun, Da Mao, and Yip and Jip are coming our way! (I’m already formulating plans to go see them! The Canadian pandas are on the move!!! But what about Bubba? And what about their panda world honor of being the Torch Bears?

What about THAT???????

It’s a good thing that Pinky taught Bubba how to use Skype!

And what about Unka Justin? Will he be able to find them?

Panda on!
